'Morphic Resonance' Chapter
Morphic, referring to form. Resonance, referring to waves or influence. Everything comes from eggs. But as it has been said, things which exist are not composed of things as they appear. The universe is expressing form. Not taking forms that aren’t there, but drawing form out of an infinite sea of potential forms.
If you have the surrounding circumstances for a thing, some small part of the thing, these work together through their own fields to give rise to whatever belongs in that space. This is why nature seems to fill ecological niches with such seeming certainty. In morphic resonance, the part is the same as the whole.
“The term [morphic fields] is more general in its meaning than morphogenetic fields, and includes other kinds of organizing fields in addition to those of morphogenesis; the organizing fields of animal and human behaviour, of social and cultural systems, and of mental activity can all be regarded as morphic fields which contain an inherent memory.” Rupert Sheldrake, The Presence of the Past (Chapter 6, page 112)
Today, we are talking about something called morphic resonance. Morphic, referring to form. Resonance, referring to waves or influence. Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Egg. A collection of goo? Indeed, the egg, and the process of complex… Seek More
You may have heard about the new findings they have been discovering regarding DNA. They have discovered that DNA can be artificially created, and it doesn’t necessarily have to include the chemicals we have in our DNA. This fake DNA… Seek More
But form is not all genetics, is it? No, it’s not all genetics. Ever hear the phrase, form follows function? Well, form actually follows intention. The reason we develop stress related illness so easily, to the point now that they are… Seek More
Now shall we discuss art? Everywhere is art. New forms arise in one of two ways, communication or realization. Realization is like birth. A new form arises from the nature of the originating source. In the case of being human,… Seek More
You think you experience life in a chain of “events” no? And these events seem very complicated and multi-faceted; leading to consequences we can even track very well. It’s actually not that complicated. Yet sometimes there are unrelated and surprising… Seek More
Everyone familiar with platonic forms? Yes, “ideal” forms… Well, the term “ideal” tends to be a bit of a stumbling block. Plato distinguished between form and manifestation. A platonic form is more akin to Sheldrake’s morphic fields than some idolized… Seek More
Intelligence. Everyone familiar with the Quantum Zeno effect? Nothing can move from one place to another? They have proven this in the lab, and well, that is sort of the same thing. An atom continuously observed remains stable. It will… Seek More
Example, let’s take a wooden coffee table. There exists in our world the potential for wooden coffee tables. The laws of physics shape how it would be mechanically engineered. The laws of biology shape the exact material properties of the… Seek More
How many powers does your mind have? What do you think? Including potential? Infinite? I offer that it has only one. It holds. It freezes. It doesn’t record. It isolates, suspends. All are the same process. Now the universe itself is… Seek More
Shall we discuss the neo-platonic aspect of today’s class? Platonic forms are what we have historically observed. What has formed the memory traces in the collective unconscious and in the species memory of any species even in the planets mineral… Seek More
